Aiming to encourage more visitors to Exmoor to enjoy the area’s delicious local produce and the landscape it comes from, Eat Exmoor is a comprehensive development & marketing project from Exmoor National Park and Visit Exmoor with support from West Somerset Council.
“Over £40m a year is spent by visitors to Greater Exmoor on food and drink. This is part of the Exmoor story: farming sustains the landscape, the landscape sustains tourism and food sustains visitors!”
Dan James, Sustaimnable Economy Manager
